The Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) new Quality Assurance Framework came into effect on
1 September 2018. Full details can be found on the NMC website via: https://www.nmc.org.uk/globalassets/sitedocuments/edandqa/nmc-quality-assurance-framework.pdf
Mott MacDonald have delivered the quality assurance of nursing and midwifery education on behalf of the NMC since 2013. During 2018-2019 we will quality assure new NMC standards of education and training of nurses, midwives and nursing associates. We are working hard to ensure the implementation of the new Quality Assurance Framework is always consistent, targeted and proportionate, whilst remaining accountable and agile in the process.
The Quality Assurance Handbook outlines all of the operational details to ensure that the process is transparent to all and that principles are applied consistently across all nursing, midwifery and nursing associate education.
Mott MacDonald manage the quality assurance process via two online portals.
The QA Hub: https://nmcomsv2.mottmac.com/ where AEIs can request events for programmes in nursing and prescribing against the new standards (2018) and the old NMC portal where we manage the QA for programmes where the standards have yet to be updated.
The NMC has provided some guidance for exceptionally reporting risks. Please refer to the Programme Providers page and the Training Resources/ Advice and Resources page for more information.
If you would like more information, or have questions about the use of the portal, you can contact the team at
We are operating a rota of availability for professional queries from education providers and visitors.

If in doubt as to who to contact, please direct queries to the Mott MacDonald office who will be able to
re-direct your enquiry as necessary.
Education institutions are advised that any documentation submitted via the QA hub that does not have clear relevance to the programme being reviewed will be permanently deleted to ensure compliance with data protection regulations. Please refer to the Quality Assurance Handbook.
